Rand Paul vs the media: who will win?

A warning to interviewers: don’t put words in Rand Paul’s mouth! Rand Paul’s unique mix of conservative Republicanism and libertarianism might explain his defensive, quick-to-interject response when he thinks an interviewer is wrong. Rand Paul complained that “Today Show” anchor Savannah Guthrie was editorializing when she said he changed his position on foreign policy issues.

My life as MSNBC’s token conservative guest

“Every time I see you on TV I change the chanel.” Yep, that’s how she spelled it. Such is the life and email box of a conservative who dares to appear on left-wing cable shows. I’ve been doing it for over ten years, which bemuses my conservative listeners and amuses my liberal ones. And of […]

Dana Perino on DC men: flabby, limp, pale, pudgy!

Memo to Beltway men: Dana Perino thinks you need work!

Perino, Fox News contributor, co-host of The Five and former White House press secretary for George W. Bush, wrote in her new memoir that in 1997, the Washington, D.C. male dating pool was decidedly unappealing. Read all »

Walker Scott 2

Is this the dumbest-ever ‘fact-check’ on a candidate?

Is this the most ridiculous example of political fact-checking since the beginning of time?

Though nothing pleases our media friends more than the opportunity to catch a GOP presidential candidate in a lie, testing Scott Walker’s bargain shopping claims seems absurd. Yet the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel did just that earlier this week, checking to see if it was really possible to buy a sweater at Kohl’s for one dollar.

In an effort to save American democracy from impending ruin, the Wisconsin governor’s assertion was put to the test: Read all »

Dude with a camera upends wedding cake debate

What happens when a guy tries to order a same-sex wedding cake from a Muslim bakery? Hilarity ensues and a national debate is suddenly turned on its head.

Due to a controversy over some states passing laws to protect religious freedoms, which allow private businesses to maintain their right of refusal to be involved in certain activities, like, say, baking a wedding cake for gays, LouderWithCrowder sent a film team undercover to order actual wedding cakes in Dearborn, MI to highlight how the law works in practice.

Oops: slow NYT misses boat on Trevor Noah backlash

Just how did the New York Times miss a Twitter backlash against Trevor Noah, Jon Stewart’s replacement for the Daily show?

While the paper lauded Trevor Noah’s takeover of the Daily Show from Jon Stewart as a positive sign of foreign comedy entering the US, many elsewhere had found previous posts on his Twitter account less than desirable. Read all »

MSNBC selfie stick

MSNBC’s strange new crusade: banning selfie sticks!

When Al Sharpton begins to devote entire hours to “lumbersexuals”, then we’ll know big changes are afoot at MSNBC, but for now, we can only wonder what might have inspired its strange new crusade against selfie sticks, of all things.

Is it part of a desperate grab for the millennial audience? Could it be tied to the return of NBC executive Andrew Lack, who may have been hired to clean up the ratings mess that is today’s MSNBC? Read all »

Leigh, Joanna 1

Joanna Leigh: terror bombing victim or fraudster?

Is a supposed Boston Marathon terror attack survivor really telling the truth about her injuries, or was it all a ploy to obtain compensation funds? Meanwhile, are those engaged in social media shaming motivated by little more than her “blonde, botox” appearance?

The strange saga of Joanna Leigh took an even stranger turn today as a Suffolk County Grand Jury voted to indict the outspoken activist. She believes privately-donated One Fund monies were distributed based on a flawed formula (number of hospital nights, vs severity of injuries) and told the Boston Globe earlier she feels the charges are retribution for challenging the process.

Cruz Ted CNN getting Obamacare

CNN’s Ted Cruz-Obamacare ‘scoop’ not what it appears

Appearing late Tuesday afternoon, CNN’s screaming headline was enough to have anyone question a certain senator’s sanity: “BREAKING NEWS- Ted Cruz Going on Obamacare”.

Coming just one day after the Texas Republican announced his candidacy for the party’s presidential nomination, how could Cruz sign up for the very legislation he has so vehemently opposed? CNN’s “scoop” was then quickly picked up by other sites eager to trumpet his supposed hypocrisy. Read all »

The Five March 2015

With friends like these…

On the day Ted Cruz finally announced his candidacy for the GOP presidential nomination, flak from the left was to be expected. But what explains some of the unsupportive reactions from Fox News Channel hosts and analysts?

On The Five, co-host Greg Gutfeld suggested Cruz was nothing more than a vanity candidate, saying “the problem I have is, is he running for himself, or is he running for the country?” Dismissing his US Senate career entirely, Gutfeld compared him to “attention-seeking vessels who are seeking a talk show or something else.” Read all »

Harf Marie Mar 2015

Marie Harf: It’s not easy being me!

Are we really at the point where government officials believe they can expect to do their jobs without facing public scrutiny?

State Department Spokeswoman Marie Harf provides today’s case-in-point: after widespread laughter and derision over the “jihadis need jobs” PR fiasco, she sees herself as a victim. But isn’t she really a public servant whose actions are subject to criticism?

Yet, here’s what she told a foreign policy conference earlier this week: Read all »

Matthews - Jonathan Capehart

Even MSNBC dislikes Senator Durbin’s ‘back of the bus’ rhetoric

When even MSNBC is critical, it should be clear to any Democratic politician they’ve absolutely blown it.

And that’s exactly where Senator Dick Durbin found himself last night. After his now-infamous use of “back of the bus” to describe Loretta Lynch’s confirmation hearing delay, Hardball fill-in host Jonathan Capehart and former GOP Chairman Michael Steele, both African-Americans, wondered why the white senator played the race card. Even the Democratic strategist on the panel could muster only a mild defense of his language. Read all »
